Mixed Media and Sculpture Judge
As Exhibitions Officer of USC Art Gallery for the past seven years, Lou is responsible for helping to deliver a vibrant and contemporary exhibition program to the Sunshine Coast and wider community. Her role also includes nurturing a team of gallery volunteers and managing a variety of events and functions held in the gallery space.
Lou holds a Bachelor of Design and Communication and a Graduate Diploma of Teaching from USC and is passionate about arts in education. She believes in making sure we all have access to creative experiences whether it is through making your own art or viewing and enjoying the work of passionate artists and creatives in the community.
Lou became involved with the Immanuel Arts Festival over the last few years as a volunteer and decided to offer further assistance and industry expertise as the Gallery Consultant after enjoying the show so much. This year Lou will judge our Mixed Media Sculpture sections.
"The Arts Festival is a huge team effort, but we need families and the coast community to really support events like this as creative endeavours benefit all of us in the long term. Art bring us joy and understanding and is a wonderful way for artists to connect with the local community.”
“We also host the Creative Generation Visual Art Excellence Awards here at USC Gallery each year and see some amazing art work from Year 12 students across the region. These creatives could be our next artists, animation experts, illustrators, filmmakers, videographers and more so let’s continue to support the visual arts.”
Lou has her own art practice in Buderim. You can see more of her work on Instagram @loujaegerart.
The University of the Sunshine Coast Gallery welcomes visitors Monday – Saturday 10.00am to 4.00pm and more information on their programs can be found at www.usc.edu.au/gallery.
The Arts Festival Committee and Immanuel Lutheran College welcomes Lou to the team and encourages everyone to come along and view the show and purchase art work to support artists but also strengthen this major school fundraiser.
